Filing for Bankruptcy in Roswell

Roswell Bankruptcy Attorney

Filing for bankruptcy is rarely a quick and easy process. The eradication of the majority of your debt, or your entire debt load, takes time, effort, and determination. The result, however, is a regained financial independence and a freedom from the constant attempts of creditors to collect from you.

The initial filing process differs somewhat depending on the type of bankruptcy you are filing for, but in general the following steps are taken:

  • Meeting with a bankruptcy attorney to discuss your financial situation and the viability of bankruptcy in your particular case
  • Providing the necessary documents to help your attorney determine which bankruptcy type is right for you
  • Taking a mandatory credit counseling class so that you are eligible to file
  • If you are filing for Chapter 7, taking a “means test” that will compare your income with the average of income of your home state, thereby establishing the validity of your hardship
  • Reviewing, completing, and signing your bankruptcy petition, so that it can be filed with the court
